Metro Exodus is a first-person shooter which has garnered a lot of interest in recent months. The game is a sequel to Metro: Last Light which was ported to Xbox One a few years ago. Ever since the title was announced at E3 2017, gamers have been asking 4A Games what sort of enhancements the Xbox One X version would bring to the table.
Many months ago, there were reports floating around that that Metro Exodus would achieve native 4K resolution on Microsoft's newest console. However, there was no concrete proof of this until now. Digital Foundry recently tested the Xbox One X and PC versions of the game and confirmed that it was rendering at native 4K on both setups.
The B-roll assets used for the video on this page come directly from the PC version operating at 4K resolution, 60 FPS. I played on Xbox One X though, finding that the visuals are remarkably similar, with the same native ultra HD resolution.
As expected, the Xbox One X version is locked to 30 FPS. Hopefully the developer will include a 60 FPS mode for those who prioritize frame rate over resolution. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more or 4A Games announces the final configuration.
Years after nuclear war devastated Earth, a few survivors still cling to existence beneath the ruins of Moscow. They have struggled against the lethal elements, fought mutated beasts, encountered paranormal horrors, and suffered the flames of civil war. Now, in Metro Exodus, they must flee the underground tunnels and lead a band of "Spartan Rangers" on an incredible, continent-spanning journey across post-apocalyptic Russia in search of a new life in the East.
